Library Loot: November 20 to 26

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!
Forgive me fellow library looters for I have been a bad co-host. It has been 3 weeks since my last LL post, and I even missed hosting Mr Linky last week. This does mean that I have a quite a few library books to share with you this week.

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz - a while ago now I went to an event where there was lots of alcohol consumed, lots of conversations had and a bit of a headache the next day. One of those conversations with one friend that I don't see all that often was about this book and how good it is. It is something of a wonder that I actually remembered that conversation enough to put in a request for this book.

Hate is Such a Strong Word by Sarah Ayoub - Bree recently reviewed this book and loved it. We talked about it one day when we were catching up so I requested it from the library.

Outback Dreams by Rachael Johns - I was meant to be getting an ARC of this one but it never turned up so requested it from the library instead.

I Kissed an Earl by Julie Anne Long - The next Pennyroyal Green book

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman - A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had requested a couple of Neil Gaiman books but they had taken forever to come in. This is the second of those books.

A Bitter Taste by Annie Hauxwell - We read the first book in the Catherine Berlin series for book club last month. This is the second book.

You Don't Even Know by Sue Lawson - I didn't get this from my usual source but it is still from a library so I am counting it! I read this one a couple of nights ago and thought it was very good.

Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey - our last book club read for the year.

Claire has Mr Linky this week so head over to share you loot links.


  1. I read The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. I enjoyed most it. Enjoy your loot.

  2. Great library loot you have!! I loved I Kissed An Earl, that was a fun and delicious story.

  3. The Ocean at the End of the Lane was good! I listened to it on audio. :)

  4. Some great choices there. I so hope you like Jasper Jones. I loved it. It still makes me chuckle when I think of zombie cheeses (which pops into my head more than you might suspect). I do know it's not for everyone though. I'm intrigued by the Gaiman too.
